B.9.1. Monitoring Transceiver Signals

Signal Tap is a debug tool that allows you to monitor important transceiver-related signals, for example:

  • rx_is_lockedtodata
  • rx_pma_ready
  • rx_ready
  • tx_pma_ready
  • tx_ready

When all of these signals are high, the PMA is in the ready state and the receiver is locked to data.

To open Signal Tap, click Tools > Signal Tap Logic Analyzer.

Have your board powered on and running when you use Signal Tap. To add signals to probe:

  1. Right-click anywhere in the Setup tab window and select Add Nodes.
  2. Search for and insert your desired nodes.
